The official press release for Magnolia Pictures’ Nymphomaniac acquisition:

Magnolia Pictures has snatched the US rights for Lars von Trier’s NYMPHOMANIAC after a buyers-only event screening a promo based on material from the film’s first part. The deal was negotiated between Magnolia’s SVP of Acquisitions, Dori Begley and Director of Acquisitions, Peter van Steemburg and TrustNordisk’s CEO, Rikke Ennis and Head of Sales, Susan Wendt.

“After the tremendous and never predictable experience of distributing MELANCHOLIA, we couldn’t be more excited to be working with Mr. von Trier again on the NYMPH()MANIAC films,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “He’s such an exciting and talented filmmaker—it’s an honor and a thrill to be associated with his world”.

Magnolia Pictures is the theatrical and home entertainment distribution arm of the Wagner/Cuban Companies, a vertically-integrated group of media properties co-owned by Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban that also includes the Landmark Theatres chain and AXS TV. Recent releases include Lars von Trier’s MELANCHOLIA and the Academy Award nominated A ROYAL AFFAIR.

Magnolia’s upcoming releases include Thomas Vinterberg’s THE HUNT.

As recently announced NYMPHOMANIAC will be completed ultimo 2013.

TrustNordisk continues presales of NYMPHOMANIAC at this year’s European Film Market in Berlin. The film includes an international ensemble cast consisting of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgård along with Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Mia Goth, Udo Kier, Jean-Marc Barr, Caroline Goodall, Kate Ashfield, Saskia Reeves, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Hugo Speer, Felicity Gilbert, Michaël Pas, Jesper Christensen, Jens Albinus, Nicolas Bro, Cyron Melville, Shanti Roney, Omar Shargawi, Tania Carlin, Severin von Hoensbroech, Peter Gilbert Cotton and many more.

NYMPHOMANIAC is produced by Louise Vesth for Zentropa Entertainments in co-production with Bettina Brokemper for Zentropa International Köln, Marianne Slot for Slot Machine and Bert Hamelinck for Caviar and with support from The Danish Film Institute, Filmstiftung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Eurimages, Deutscher Filmförderfonds, Nordic Film & TV Fond, Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée, Belgian Tax Shelter and Flanders Audiovisual Fund and in cooperation with DR and Film i Väst and with participation from Arte, Canal+ and The West Danish Film Fund and with development support of the Media Programme.

The acquisition does not mean the film will debut at major film festivals. It is assumed that Nymphomaniac will not be shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

‘Four editors were working around the clock to meet the Cannes deadline, but we had to give it up – after 268 script pages, 11 weeks of shooting and with 100 hours of material it would have been rape to finish the two films in time for the festival,’ [said] producer and CEO of Zentrope Entertainments Peter Aalbæk Jensen.

Nymphomaniac‘s plot synopsis: “The film is a wild and poetic story of a woman’s erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Gainsbourg). On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi-faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.”
